BATTERY and SD CARD INSTALLATION

The Bushnell X-8Digital Trail Camera is designed to operate using 4 or 8 AA batteries. We recommend using a full set of 8 Lithium (for longest life) or Alkaline batteries.

NOTE: Always set the power switch to the Off position when installing or removing batteries.

Please make sure the batteries are inserted correctly, as indicated inside the battery compartment. Incorrect voltage or polarity (+/-)will damage the camera. The battery level meter on the top right of the display will indicate when the internal batteries are low.

Do not mix old and new batteries.

Do not mix battery types-useALL lithium or ALL alkaline. Rechargeable batteries are not recommended.

Memory

Your X-8Digital Trail Camera has a memory card slot, to accept SD cards(sold separately) up to 32GB maximum capacity. If no SD card is inserted, the display will flash “NOSD”, and the camera will not operate.

Inserting an SD card

Make sure the power switch is in the Off position whenever adding or removing memory.

Insert an SD card into the card slot completely and oriented correctly as shown by the icon above the slot (label up, contacts facing down and notched corner on the right).

To remove the SD memory card, depress the SD card and pull out the card gently.

Using a new, blank SD card is recommended. If the SD card has been used in another device, please make sure to format using the Format option in the X-8trail cam’s Setup menu before you set the camera to capture photos/videos. New cards are ready to use straight from the package.

ABOUT THE SETUP MENU

Slide the power switch to the On position. You’ll see“WAIT”on the display, then the Setup Menu screen(see below). Before you start using the camera, you’ll no doubt want to set the date/time so they are imprinted correctly on your photos, and maybe change the trigger delay time and image resolution to your preferences. This is done by editing the settings of an item listed in the Setup Menu.

To enter the Setup Menu at any time, press the Setup button (far left side of the control panel).

USING THE SETUP MENU

The Setup Menu has 5 different items, which appear on a list in the left frame of the display. Here’s how to edit (change) the setting of a menu item:

1.Select the menu item you want to edit by pressing the Up orDown button until the item is blinking.Note: you can see the current/ default setting for each item (without changing it) in the main center frame as you move up and down the list of items.

2.Press the Ok button.

3.You can now select the setting you prefer for the selected item by pressing the Up orDown button. The setting displayed in the center frame will blink until you pressOk to confirm it is the setting you want to save.

4.To exit the Setup menu at any time, simply press the Setup button.
